Finally, after a pretty darn dull conference (minus Unravel and Mirrors Edge), EA are shedding new information on the highly anticipated title, Star Wars Battlefront. The crowd has been waiting for this! Show us some gameplay EA, do it now!
Created in the Frostbite engine, the game looks the part. At least, that’s what images on stage show. Can we see the trailer already please, EA?
Oh, looks like it has leaked online already. Here it is, a little earlier than EA intended:
Remember that memorable snow battle on Hoth in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back? The footage above essentially shows a recreation of it – a gorgeous one at that – played by gamers in one large multiplayer battle.
Freedom is paramount it seems. Play as a member of the resistance on foot, or you know, hop into a fighter to reenact some casual Walker toppling action. If that wasn’t enough, it looks like players can step into the shoes of Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader, joining the battle for some Force and Lightsaber shenanigans.
For lack of a better description, Battlefront looks like the lovechild of Battlefield and the Star Wars franchise. It looks amazing!
Excited? I certainly am! Now all we’ll have to do is wait till November 17th when the game finally releases.
